Weekly Report 7 Mar 14

Post by Brad » Fri Mar 07, 2014 11:19 am

Tailor are running at the moment and although the season is a couple of months away there are some good size fish within the estuary systems. Some fish that have been caught this week are around the 2.5kg mark which are spot on for a feed. Bream are also in good numbers within the canal systems and it is only a matter of finding the schools to get a good feed. Of course a strong berley trail will do the same job for you if you are prepared to wait. There are reports of some nice whiting being caught within the Pumicestone Passage of late around the exposed flats opposite Gemini Towers at low tide. The canals around Pelican Waters down as far as the shopping centre have held some trevally and the occasional queenfish but mostly smaller bream and trevally are being target in the early hours of the morning.

Plenty of wind about offshore again but I have seen anglers getting out early and trolling around Old Women's Island and within the boundaries of the Mooloolah River for mackerel or mulloway. There are squid on the chew on the Gneerings Shoal and around some of the shallow areas of Murphy's Reef system. Currimundi Reef has coral trout for the lucky ones, bream, squire and an occasional spotty mackerel. The walls at Mooloolaba have entertained anglers in the past week with quality bream being caught and trevally right throughout the area. Live prawns just get smashed in this area particularly around the moored sailing boats.

Although the wind is up for the next few days there is still an opportunity to get out in the sheltered areas early and try for either tuna or reef species so give it a go. Remember that safety has to be the number one factor at all times. Should be good to hit the estuaries over the coming days for mangrove jack, trevally, whiting and bream both in the passage and around Maroochydore in areas like the cod hole and Twin Waters. Have Fun!
